geez, here in SA you can get 2 real authetic tacos for 0.99! I guess that's because we are in Northern Mexico here.
It's obvious that this individual doesn't "get out" often. Go to Houston or any other really big city and you'll pay lots for your tacos. A $3 overcharge? How silly you are and the Advocate for reporting on this - you could have talked with the manager (or maybe even the waitress/waiter) and they might have adjusted your "high tab"if you were overcharged. If that $ was on the menu, then you need to read and order what you can afford or better yet, stay at home.

Isn't it odd that a person can be so much braver sitting at home, behind a keyboard, than they can be in person? ;~)
born, that surprises me! : )
I'm really not one to make a fuss in a crowd and my daughter was watching. At the time, I thought it better to accept it gracefully and move on.
i agree, if VICAD wants to run stories on 'over charging' investigate the two local hospitals
good lord they know how to slap adds on to your bill
b2b, you didn't argue long enough over that jacket
Born, I don't blame you! Every time that has happened to me, I point out the difference & they always adjust the price, of course it's usually at Target or WalMart. You should have asked the clerk how you would've known that since it was CLEARLY marked at the lower price, then question their intelligence, maybe call her a gaping vagina on your way out to boot. ; )
A nurse overcharged at a restruant must not have ever spent the night at a local hospital.
I thought that too until a few years ago. I was in Dilliards of all places. I was buying my daughter a coat and she tried on the first one and it fit and she liked it, so I go to check out and it rings up a much higher price and I point out the price tag. The clerk went to ask the manager and they would not honor the price tag price. I told them to keep the coat and as I was walking out I overheard that clerk talking to another one where everyone could hear her and said "she must have known the price was wrong". It was embarrassing. I felt like a criminal or something. I don't think I've ever bought anything there again.
I never have issues with price discrepancies....if it is marked that they have to honor it
I guess it was a slow day for news..and then... the gas prices went up today and maybe VICAD is trying to save gas.........................
Hey...it's not like she didn't know in advance what the cost was for the tacos....so...DON'T EAT THERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Go some place else, no?Yo quiero TACO BELL!-----------------oh well-------------------------------------------------------------
how did this story make the newspaper ?
I agree with mindurownbiz, come on watchdog
Businesses misrepresent prices all the time. What do you do when a price tag on a coat says one price and the store won't honor it because it was a mistake?How about when there is a price right under a product at a store and when you get to the checkout, it rings up differently? Argue the fact, and the clerk says that sale was over yesterday and they just hadn't removed the sale tag yet.I see this so much today, that I swear it is meant to trick the customer.
This is probably the most useless story I've read in a very long time.
Even $3 a taco is way too much! She should find somewhere else.
I too am confused...
I'm a little confused here. Did the restaurant just overcharge her ( like the tacos were supposed to be $3 a piece and they rang up an extra taco or something), or were the tacos $4.50 a piece and she just felt that she shouldn't have to pay that much for a taco?
